This circular inlay of polychrome faience bears a gray rosette/flower design with 8 inlaid inner petals of white with a raised central yellow circle. Some of the glaze remains, though much surface wear is evident; a great deal of the gray glaze has worn down to the underlying paste, which is (or has discolored to) a brownish color.
